Customs officers from the port of Elefsina in Greece have seized 17,200kg of smuggled illegal HFC refrigerant.
The haul of 1,352 cylinders was discovered on Friday in a refrigerated trailer in the Aspropyrgos suburb of Athens. There was no documentation with the shipment and all the refrigerant was in illegal disposable cylinders.
While refrigerant samples have been sent for official analysis, photos suggest the haul included a wide range of gas types including R134a, R410A, R407A, R407F, R507 and R1234yf.
The refrigerant and trailer have been confiscated pending further investigation.
